  1. This looks delicious, I can’t wait to try it. I’m thinking that I would try pureeing half the mango, but leaving the other half in small chunks for more texture.

    Also, champagne or atualfo mangoes are sometimes marketed as honey mangoes. You’re right that they’re the best mangoes. The key is to be very patient and don’t eat them before they ripen fully–they should be a deep yellow-orange all over. Even slightly shrivelly is best.

  2. Wow, that looks delicious!! I haven’t tried it yet, but it seems like quite a simple recipe – yet so elegant in appearance! Beautiful.

    1. It’s such a simple recipe! The only hard part is getting those even layers. Like I said, it tastes just as good hastily spooned into a mug 🙂

  3. What a pretty dessert! These make such a lovely presentation! And I loooove mango and cheesecake, so this is perfect!
